Take our Musical Mammas Quiz featuring 8 famous theatre mothers and see if you can score 100%! Mother’s Day aka Mothering Sunday is a reminder that mums, moms and mummies come in all shapes, sizes and genders. Not only are these moms big characters, they’re also the biggest voices in show business!
Theatre moms range from the weird and wonderful to the strange and scary. But one thing’s for sure – they’re all a bit bonkers…and utterly fabulous! So, how well do you know your musical mothers? Take our test and find out!
In addition to the mammas in our quiz, check out some of these other amazing West End mammas. Restrictions are finally lifting! So they’ll be back on the West End Theatre stage soon!
Yocheved (The Prince of Egypt)
Yocheved performs an act of heartbreaking bravery and sacrifice at the beginning of The Prince of Egypt. Pharaoh Seti orders the killing of all Hebrew boys to prevent an uprising. So, Yocheved sends places her infant son, Moses, in a basket on the river Nile. It turns out to be a better idea than it sounds.
Lorraine Baines (Back to the Future)
Long awaited Back to the Future – The Musical, finally arrives at the Adelphi Theatre in 2021. What’s more, we can’t wait! One of the main characters is Lorraine Baines, played by Rosanna Hyland. She’s got one of the more complicated plot lines, having to play herself twice! Of course, falling in love with your own son is complicated too! As a matter of fact, it’s almost as weird as having your son travel back in time. Especially when he’s got to fix you up with his dad!
Nurse (& Juliet)
Finally, proving that you don’t have give birth to be a great mother…it’s Nurse! Our favourite character in the triple Oliver Award winning & Juliet, Nurse is the type of mum you’d want to take to Ibiza! She’s probably not much use with cuts and grazes, but she’s full of great advice. And, she’ll almost certainly come back from the bar with enough G&Ts to sink a battleship!
So, like our Musical Mammas YouTube Quiz shows, mothers really do come in infinite varieties! Coupled with these amazing moms, why not treat the incredible mama in your life (a mum, a friend, an aunt…they’re all amazing!) to a theatre treat!
